Let’s talk about tea for prostate health. This tea benefits the prostate but is also great for the health of men in general. Make some today!
So many of the herbal world focuses on women. From puberty to menstruation to childbirth to perimenopause and finally, menopause. There’s a lot to think about being a girl. But there isn’t a lot of focus on men. Today, we celebrate the guys in our lives with a tea for prostate and general men’s health.
Do Guys Drink Tea?
Sure, most commercials show guys drinking coffee. Black, rich, strong coffee. But the truth is, a lot of guys drink tea too. Some prefer it to coffee as there is a lot more variety without the caffeine. And they can drink it iced or hot, making it a perfect drink.
Tea for Men’s Health
Men’s bodies have some unique requirements. They have a prostrate where women don’t. They have a higher suggested caloric intake and often have more physically (though, not always!) demanding jobs. These are my suggestions for tea for prostate and general men’s health, and all are dried botanicals. Holy basil, ginseng root, hawthorn berries, saw palmetto berries, ginger, molasses, ginkgo leaves are all great for men’s health.
In a small bowl, mix the molasses and ginger root.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Blending in this way will help to distribute the molasses better than just dripping into the mix and having it clump into balls of goo.
Store this in a small jar until ready to use.
This will make about 5 cups of tea, and the tea blend can be doubled or tripled for more tea.

Benefits of Tea for Prostate Ingredients
Each one of the ingredients has different benefits that can help the male body to function better.
- Holy Basil is an adaptogen that aids the body adapt to whatever situation that life throws at it
- Ginseng is also a powerful adaptogen
- Hawthorn Berries can help with vein structure and blood flow
- Saw Palmetto Berries can aid the function of the prostate making this a great tea for prostate health
- Ginger Root is anti-inflammatory and warming
- Molasses contains many vitamins and minerals while adding a bit of sweetness
